The freak show that is triagr
I hate our triage set up. It was designed to drive the staff insane. There is a camera that looks at the entrance, so we have a screen where we can see cars pull up, people walking up. Its a long way from our entrance to the desk. A ridiculous design. A cruel design. It allows us to watch people walk a distance to the desk. This allows many to put on a performance. Sometimes a person who strode up to the entrance on camera will be practically crawling when they get near the window.
Let the freak show begin. It often resembles the cantina scene in Star Wars. There are goths. Tattoed people. Pierced people. Women with so much cleavage, I worry the girls will escape. Twitchy people. Falling asleep people. Yelling people. Hostile people. People who go to the floor. People who want to show me something on their butt people. Drunk people. People who have smoked dope. Reek of cigarettes and beer. People who make you feel like you are in the twilight zone. People who make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Whispering people. People who brought gruesome "samples" in little jars. Vomitting people. Coughing people. People who can't breathe. People in pain. Pale people. Flushed people. Bleeding people. Broken people. Sad people. Crying people. Anxious people. Dirty people. Smelly people. Plain people. Good looking people. People in wheelchairs. No english people. Funny people. Mean people. Nice people.
Once in a while there is a Marilyn. You know Marilyn who was on the Munsters. She was the only "normal" member of the family. The rest of them were monsters. Marilyn allows you to relax for a moment.
